If F(x)=2x+2 Simplify when a. f(x) and b. f(x^2) Im just unsure if i should be substituting in a 'x' in to the equation or i have to multiply the whole equation against the negative sign. Same goes for f(x^2). Can someone please push me in the right direction? Many thanks!

I take it you meant f(x) rather than F(x). (a). f(x) = 2(x) + 2 = 2x + 2 (b). f(xÂ²) = 2(xÂ²) + 2 = 2xÂ² + 2

$\displaystyle f(x)\,=\,2x\,+\,2$ $\displaystyle f(x^2)\,=\,2x^2\,+\,2$
